"NFL football is a stupid jerkwad sport"
...played by a bunch of very rich, stupid jerkwads...I guess 'rich' outweighs 'stupid' for many.

(Some famous coach was asked once what it took to succeed in coaching football. He replied,(paraphrased)"Well, you have to be smart enough to work out all the complex factors in planning plays and managing players....and dumb enough to think it's all worthwhile.")

How many people make a living out of pro football? Many, many hundreds of thousands, from the food stalls to the newspaper, TV and publicity people to the clothing makers (jersey-T-shirt etc.) to the construction workers who build the stadiums to the transportation companies etc. etc.

Now take the equally stupid pro soccer (football outside of N. Am.) "game" and add the even larger number of people who depend on it in one way or another for their livelihood and the answer is millions

Our guest Joe is one of our best trolls, starting many a pointless topic in an obnoxious manner.

It's not so much what the title of the thread says, but i just don't find it a compelling sport anymore. Perhaps it's because it's hard to know if there really is a person encased in those uniforms. All the padding makes them look three times as big (wide) as they really are. But mostly it's the headgear...helmets with multiple bars and a dark visor that looks like a space helmet, making it impossible to really see the player.

Watching basketball, baseball, football (soccer), and hockey(except for the goal keeper) allows one to actually see and recognize the participants. And except for baseball, these sports allow for pretty much continuous a.ction

I am deeply offended and enraged that a scum bag like Michael Vick still has a career after the abuse, and horrors he inflicted upon defenseless animals. It is rewarding him, saying don't do that you jerk, on the one hand and then telling him don't do it again, mikey, you naughty boy, on the other, and then sending him back to the playground.

There is more thought in that opening post than I have ever read from this particular thread starter. You have hit a new high and quite outdone yourself, Josepp.

Notice the alliteration in the stark yet poignant soundbite-sentence: In case you care. To some, the period missing in the thread title may be perceived as an error, but people who see more deeply will recognize it as a poetic 'come hither'.

There is little else to say except BRAVO, Josepp, BRAVO, for we who are about to puke salute you.

I don't wish to argue the relative merits of the two sports but this business about pads and helmets making American football sissified is a myth. The pads and helmets actually serve as offensive weapons. You can lay a lot deadlier hit on someone without damaging your shoulder if its cushioned and covered in hard plastic.

I don't know why I picked the NFL--it's really football at any level. It's a sport for rednecks and ghetto-hoppers. It's a game where poor sportsmanship is rewarded as long as it's as ostentatious as it is pointless. It's a game where it's really about the audience and hence all the face paint, cheesehead hats, tailgate parties, shirtlessness in freezing weather, etc. The players are just tokens put on the field to reflect the fan mentality. It's game where winning has no importance outside of rubbing it in as mean and nasty as you can to the losing side but with classless pop culture cleverness. "You mad, bro?"   

This game should be outlawed just for being stupid.

Those lsted were not gunfighters (which was an invention of the motion pictures), but were law enforcement officers, or participated only in one or two affairs. No more deserving of the gunfighter appelation than Aaron Burr, who shot Hamilton in a duel.
Even Billy, the cowboy who killed two men following the Lincoln County War, was never a gunfighter, professional or otherwise.

No, technically they were shootists or shooters. And folks like Clay Allison were not particularily good people. You should check them out. The absence of Henry "Billy the Kid" McCarty is deliberate; he wasn't exactly middle-aged when Garrett (who was shot dead while mictruating) shot him.

Penelope Rutledge would agree with that, Chuck. Polo is indeed a patrician and magnificently classy sport that embodies all the noble virtues and skills which are inherent in establishing and maintaining an imperial order based upon industry, enlightenment, law, and good taste.

Football, in comparison, is a tawdry and tasteless spectacle.

Yes, baseball is THE game. Fuck all the others. Polo? Get a life. A real game should have a purpose not worry about being classy. I've played baseball all my life. I've played football in very informal conditions as a boy but here's the problem with this "sport": There'a always some asshole who has to prove what a tough, macho dickhead he is by smashing into you as hard as he can. I'm not a pro player being paid millions to take hits so I'm really not cool with having a permanent spinal, rib or hip injury because I played a "harmless" game of football on somebody's front lawn with an asshole who thinks he should be playing on Dallas's front line (where he'd get killed in short order).

And as long as I have watched this sport or read about it, it just seems that football attracts assholes and brings out the worst in people. So when you tell me you love football, you're telling me everything I need to know about you: you're a dickhead. No other sport puts up with the bullshit of its athletes like football does. And the fans complain but still watch, still pay extravagant sums to go watch because they are just as bad as the athletes their money pays ridiculous salaries to. What other championship event gets more coverage than the Superbowl? For what other championship do corporation spend millions to air commercials specifically made for this event (some of teh commercials are ok but what the hell was that horrible Doritos commercial they aired last year doing on TV??)? It's ridiculous.

Football truly is a sport as Meriam-Webster defines it below. It certainly isn't a game in any real sense.

Meriam-Webster, josepp? Mere johnny-come-latelys! Can't even spell proper!
There are three sports, hunting, shooting, and fishing.
If something doesn't die, then your game is a game!
That's why they don't call it 'The Olympic Sports.'

If we're going to get nit-picky about grammar, spelling and such, your last statement should read:

"There are three sports: hunting, shooting and fishing."

We use a colon to direct attention to matter that follows. Also we do not generally use the "serial comma" (comma before "and") anymore although there's some variation on this.

Are you not getting enough anger and hostility to suit you in your 3-D life, josepp? :-D I wonder, because you seem to always be seeking out more of it online. Youtube is full of that sort of thing too, which is why I just watch the videos now and hardly bother anymore to read the wasteland of "comments" posted below them. To do so is rather like going for a swim in a toxic waste disposal pond.

'If we're going to get nit-picky about grammar, spelling and such, your last statement should read:

"There are three sports: hunting, shooting and fishing."'

If I was being really nit-picky, I would point out that that should more properly be:

'There are three sports; hunting, shooting, and fishing.' or
'There are three sports: Hunting, shooting, and fishing.'

Unless this example of punctuation has been changed since I was at school, which is probable! I haven't seen speech-marks in a book for ages, for instance, and the serial comma, as you rightly point out, is another thing being abandoned. However, as it more correctly fits my old-world speaking patterns, I refuse to conform to this instance of modern modes. The whole point of punctuation is to enable the reader to 'hear' the writers language.

Of course, I'm not being nit-picky at all, just poking the borax at Mr. Webster's definitions, and using the incorrect word 'proper' to draw attention to that.
Have a nice day, josepp.

I once knew a man who could nitpick anyone into the ground over just about anything at all, and he took savage delight in doing so. Fortunately, he's not in these Earthly haunts any longer. He is an ex-nitpicker.

From Mr Wiki

"Nitpicking is the act of removing nits (the eggs of lice, generally head lice) from the host's hair. As the nits are cemented to individual hairs, they cannot be removed with most lice combs and, before modern chemical methods were invented, the only options were to shave all the host's hair or to pick them free one by one.
This is a slow and laborious process, as the root of each individual hair must be examined for infestation. It was largely abandoned as modern chemical methods became available; however, as lice populations can and do develop resistance, manual nitpicking is still often necessary.

As nitpicking inherently requires fastidious, meticulous attention to detail, the term has become appropriated to describe the practice of meticulously searching for minor, even trivial errors in detail (often referred to as "nits" as well), and then criticising them (see nitpicking (pastime))."

I dunno...resembles war, gives folks a good excuse to eat unhealthy food and drink beer, promotes something like bonding.

On the other hand, knowing the punishment that the players are taking and the long-term damage it will cause them, I cannot watch it much with a clean conscience. Yeah, I know they are making an uncoerced *choice.* But it still bothers me a lot.

I don't think anyone who watches football and enjoys it really give a shit either way ... to each their own ... Me I love the game I played it in HS and yes it is a hard sport. Ya get knocked around .. ahhh so do tennis players with worn out knees, baseball players with worn out throwing arms ...

Rugby player with concussions ... there is no safe sport .. hell ya can fall on the ice if you ice skate ...

And how about the gymnastics, broken necks, bones ... falls ... yup it is all tough if you want to play any sport.

Dan... I gave up boxing when I realized my eyes protruded from the sockets far too far to be in the ring. A light tap and I was blind. I have the eyes and glasses to prove it. But, I wanted to be "my old man's son". He held three Maritime Canada weight division belts at once when he was fighting as Billy The Kid (takes on all comers) just before WW2. That generation truly was tough as nails.

I know that sounds disjointed but there it is.
